Despite the atrocious and inhumane “form” of killing employed by the Assad regime, the rebels who we are currently calling the “Free Syrian Army” are just as despicable. Why in the world would we rush to the aid of people like this? Furthermore, Russia among others are questioning the reports that the gas was used by Assad, calling John Kerry a liar, and threatening action of their own if we act. This entire situation is FUBAR, and we should keep our distance save for one condition. And that condition would be based on our resolve to act in a decisive manner on the scale of WWII. If we don’t have the courage, strength and resolve to annihilate the region, impose our morality and our will, and occupy that region for decades to come – then we shouldn’t do anything, because tepid acts of war accomplish nothing.
